As a result of renovations occurring in Main Street Loop, the bus/streetcar loop at the station is closed. This forces buses on 20 CLIFFSIDE to interline with buses on 62 MORTIMER. Eastbound buses stop on the west side of Main Street at Danforth. Westbound buses divert via west on Danforth Avenue and north on Chisholm Avenue. This diversion and interlining is expected to continue until September.

With the completion of the construction work at Main Street station’s bus terminal, the temporary route change is reversed and service reverts to normal.
